Pioneer Day October 11

ALWAYS HELD ON THE SATURDAY
PRECEDING OCTOBER 12

The purpose of Pioneer Day in 1931 
was to thank the area ranchers and farmers for their 
business during the difficult years of the Depression.
Their produce helped to keep the local economy going.

The merchants closed their doors for the day and 
invited the farmers and ranchers to come to town 
and enjoy lunch in the park. The tradition has 
continued with a free bean feed in the downtown city
 park, following a parade on Spring Street that begins 
at 10:00 a.m.

Some of the special activities that have taken place at
past Open House events . . . enjoying the music,
watching wool spinning and wheat weaving,
listening to small gasoline engines, practicing cowboy
skills --- roping a stationary target and branding
a block of wood, seeing the huge Jeanesville Pump
and viewing the tractors that were driven through the
parade.
